AIME Frank F. Aplan Award in

For his labor of love to StabCal and his tireless devotion to the mining industry as well as students and research

Dr. Hsin-Hsiung Huang taught in the Metallurgical & Materials Engineering Department at Montana Tech for 40 years.  He retired 6 months ago but remains active as Professor Emeritus.  His career in Chemical Metallurgy dates back to when he was a freshman in Taiwan.  He and his advisor, Dr. Bob Bartlett, at Stanford University, received the Extractive Metallurgy Award from AIME.  He is also a proud recipient of a Lifetime Distinguished Research Award from Montana Tech.  Dr. Huang spent most of his academic career at Montana Tech doing process analysis and modeling.  He is the author of StabCal, a software package that is used to perform thermodynamic calculations and process simulations. The program can be used for applications in pyrometallurgy, hydrometallurgy, geochemistry, water chemistry, water treatment, environmental engineering, and many other disciplines.  In the summer, Dr Huang loves to travel, hike and play tennis.  In the winter, he enjoys cross country skiing and snow shoeing.  Throughout the year, you can find him practicing piano, doing Sudoku, and, of course, updating StabCal. He and his wife, ShuMing, have two grown-up sons, Nicolas and Oliver.
